According to a Kentucky State Police, two months ago the police were patrolling the Beans Fork area of Bell County looking for a wanted person. Troopers found Bullins, who was known by the troopers to be wanted. She attempted to flee from the scene in her vehicle. However, the vehicle became stuck in her yard.
According to the release, troopers apprehended Bullins. While making the arrest, several items consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine were found in Bullins’ vehicle. Also, in the vehicle was Porter. He was placed under arrest as well.
The Kentucky State Police Drug Enforcement/Special Investigative Unit was called to the scene to safely dispose of any hazardous material. Trooper Ryan Sizemore is in charge of the investigation.
